Fatal Crash in Cattaraugus County

A Machias man is dead following a car vs. pedestrian accident Sunday on Route 16 in the Town of Yorkshire.

Police say 28-year-old Edward Speaker was walking in the traffic lane at about 1:45 a.m. when he was hit by a vehicle driven by Jeanette Peterson.

Troopers say Peterson was not driving while intoxicated, but it’s possible that Speaker had been drinking. Police are continuing their investigation.
